My wife and I planned a trip to Rome and it just happened to be the same week as the funeral of the Holy Father. Needless to say the book was helpful in guiding you at different times of day for different sites, etc. the nice thing about the book is it gives a nice version of the history of each site and acts as your unpaid tour guide while in Rome. Do yourself a favor and make sure to find one or two less popular sites for each day that you can research on the internet before going on your trip. There is so much history that you can pay attention to only the major sites and forget about the tiny piazzas that have tons of historical significance. If you are a Christian make sure to visit the Mamertine Prision where Sts. Peter and Paul were held. The site is very moving and you may find it to be as significant as St. Peter's Basilica. We did not use the resturant advice as it is hard to really go wrong in Rome. You can find 10 places to each on every block it is so easy to find good food. We highly recommend this book along with his Italian Phrase book for those who do not speak Italian. Ciao!
